Atlantic Records recording artist Flo Rida was popped for DUI when he was caught swerving in and out of lanes in a $1.7 million Bugatti; in Miami. The police pulled the “Low” rapper over around 3:30 AM this morning Thursday (June 9). According to TMZ.com, “During the stop, cops detected the odor of alcohol — so Flo was given a field sobriety test … and didn’t perform very well. Cops say Flo’s blood alcohol level was .185 … more than twice the legal limit.” Below is an update from TMZ.
UPDATE: According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops say a large crowd gathered around Flo after cops had pulled him over.
Several bystanders were “trying to get officers to let [Flo Rida] go. Some individuals were offering to drive [Flo] home.”
When the officer tried to conduct a “walk the line” test — Flo told the cop, “Officer I can’t do this. I don’t feel I can’t walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let’s try another test.”
Flo then tried to convince the officer, “I can make it home.” Cops didn’t let him try.
Cops say they ran a computer check on Flo – and cited the rapper when they learned his driver’s license had been suspended last month for failing to pay a traffic fine.
